Hi! I’m Brandy, the founder of Hello Subscription (formerly known as MommySplurge). I’m a mom of 3 kids, A (6, girl), and E (4, boy), and F (baby boy!). I started this blog reviewing subscription boxes, and its growth has been incredible. I love writing for you and helping you choose what purchases meet your needs.
We love playing with subscription box stuff! It’s just plain fun, convenient, and easy to have all your shopping needs come in the mail to you, and our reviews show you what’s in every box, so you can decide for yourself if you love it.
Alena of Modern Mommy Files is the Associate Editor of Hello Subscription. She is a frequent contributor and is responsible for helping maintain the blog behind the scenes. I could not do it without her! You should go check out her blog and product reviews!
As Hello Subscription (formerly known as MommySplurge) has grown, the number of contributors has as well! If you’re interested in becoming a Hello Subscription reviewer, feel free to send a sample review of your latest box to us.
